Reading Is Fundamental


This year, once again, the students of William O. Schaefer and Cottage Lane Elementary Schools participated in the RIF contest sponsored by the SOCES PTA.  RIF is the largest nonprofit literacy organization in the United States.images.jpg

This year’s theme was “Reading is all around us.”  The participants had to think about the wonderful books they had read this year.  They then had to draw a picture to show what reading meant to them and write a sentence describing the picture.

I judged the entries submitted by the kindergarten, first and second-grade students at William O. Schaefer.  They all believed that reading is very important.  They expressed how reading sparked their imaginations and how, through reading, they were able to meet wonderful characters and travel to places far from home.
